How do you stop pop ups?


Pop-ups are not annoying but may damage your system if you don't get rid of them timely. Research shows that pop-ups may distribute malware or other malicious programs. Be careful! Usually, pop-ups are generated by adware program. So in first step, you should check your installed programs and uninstall any suspicious programs. If the pop-ups still appears and disturbs your browsing history, you can reset your browser to default settings to stop them. If the above manual way is useless, try running a powerful malware remover to remove those annoying pop-ups. More information at:

When starting computer this message is showing Runner Invalid Black Web version id "6.3.2.62-7288971L"


Hate to tell you this, but BackWeb is adware . If you have recently used Ad-Aware or SpyBot, it may have removed this, but not whatever is trying
to execute it. I would recommend downloading Ad-Aware, update it, and
run it again wink.gif

Mostlikely you are infected with either a Virus or a peace of spyware. Go get Ad-aware http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-2008/3000-8022_4-10045910.html?part=dl-ad-aware&subj=dl&tag=top5&cdlPid=10844457 and install it and run a scan on your comptuer. when you are done with that go get Spybot Search and destroy http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-Destroy/3000-8022_4-10122137.html?tag=mncol&cdlPid=10861988 and install/run it. once you are done go to http://housecall.antivirus.com and run a free virus scann.

if this doesnt help please give us more information. What email system are you you using? Yahoo? Google? and are you using Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, Thunderbird, or something else to check your email?

Sounds like you have a bunch of spyware and adware. If you are lucky enough to be able to save your computer, boot into safe mode with networking and download and run scans with the following programs:
AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition
Lavasoft Ad-Aware Free Edition
Spybot Search and Destroy

In Spybot, run an immunization as well which should help to prevent future "breakouts" I would also recommend setting Spybot and AVG up to do a weekly/monthly scan of your computer. You can also do this with Ad-Aware but you would need to pay for a higher version.

Sounds like you have spyware, adware, and maybe even a virus. Try using lavasofts ad-aware personal edition, or spybot search and destroy, or avg anti virus. To get rid of the infection. If that doesn't work maybe try Norton or you might have to re-install windows. Sorry try those and see what you can find. Hope this helps. M~

DELL DIMENSION 3100 PROBLEM


Even the best pop-up blocker may let a few through. If you are getting more than a few (especially if they are occurring when you are not actively browsing the web), I would highly recommend downloading, installing, and scanning with a free program called SpyBot Search & Destroy. This will remove any spyware/adware that might be causing your added pop-ups.

Pop ups


It sounds like perhaps you have been hijacked or have a virus or some sort of spyware/adware. Using a wireless router shouldn't mean that you'll be bombarded with popups, but be sure you have your firewall running and security enabled on the router, just to be safe.

That said, try running a virus scan with whatever anti-virus you have installed. If you don't have anything, use TrendMicro's HouseCall (http://housecall.trendmicro.com/). That I believe also will, or will give the option to, check for adware/spyware. If it doesn't, or if it doesn't find anything, try downloading a program like Spybot Search & Destroy (a personal favorite). You can download it here. Run a scan with Spybot and delete anything that it finds. Make sure you've set up Backups in the Spybot options first, and take a system screen shot via System Restore before you do anything.

If you need additional help, please let me know. Hopefully this helps though!

Good luck!
